Featured route: hike Grenspark Kalmthoutse Heide

Varied walk in the heart of the Grenspark Kalmthoutse Heide

You can enjoy the boundlessness in Grenspark Kalmthoutse Heide! This diverse and dynamic nature reserve lies on both sides of the Belgian-Dutch border. Vast, unspoiled landscapes of heathland, fens, dunes, woods, meadows and polders alternate.

Among other things, the enormous diversity of this piece of nature is of considerable ecological and cultural-historical value. Rare plants and animals live there on fertile soil. Visitors can literally and figuratively catch their breath there - on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. The Border Park is part of the Natura 2000 network, which provides sustainable protection for the most important nature areas throughout Europe.

Athena Ossendrecht is situated at the edge of this unique area.

For this great tour, we first take the bike or the car and drive 5 to 10 minutes to camping Hazeduinen. There you can park and have a drink afterwards. The hike is about 12 kilometres long and introduces you to some of the most beautiful places in the Grenspark. On this route it is a lot quieter than during the walks that depart from De Vroente.
